View Full Version : [TAVERN] Humanoid Feast of Carrion

2006-02-12, 07:19 PM
You see before you a large tent with the colors of rotting flesh striping down the sides. There is a large banner above the opening that says “Humanoid Feast of Carrion” Many people of humanoid appearances are flocking into the tent. The Smell of cooked and rotting flesh mixes together and creates a rancid odor.
The smell develops and smells a lot worse than the outside. There are many curved tables, already set with sharp knifes and forks, and spoons. In the middle there are rotting dead bodies being chopped up and cooked, and there are also some normal foods, like Spaghetti, Sausage and Steak. People are crowding around the cooks area watching in amazement as they do what there doing. Some people are already seated eating there food. There is a thick smoke at the top of the tent, being let out slowly from a vent.

A long time ago, there was a war that waged for over 100 years between Guwardia and Lumbarg. After Guwardia won, the new king needed to do something with the bodies. So he made a large festival, and the main meals were the dead soldiers that were in the battles. Many people where appalled the first year, but the second year, they told them how, if they ate warriors, they would gain there prowess. That year all the bodies were consumed, and then it became a tradition. So now 8 moons after the first snow, they hold the festival until the next rain.

Well, cannibalism is D&D defined as an evil act, it's how a ghoul is created (when a humanoid acquires a taste for the flesh of other sentient humanoids). This could be very interesting if you emphasized the undead connection - make the staff all ghouls, who started their grisly business in life and didn't let death interfere with profits. The clientele would be primarily other undead, and savage humanoids/monsters not confined to societial restrictions.

Well, in my campeign it is not a evil act, and i dont realy feal like re-writing the whole entire thing, because i based it of of my campeign.

I see. You wouldn't really have to re-write anything - just change "human" to "ghoul" in the NPC description. But if it's campaign-specific...

Maybe add a disclaimer affecting to such? A perpetual "barbecue" of humanoid meat is a neat idea that I might find some use for as 'shock material' for my own campaigns, with the added undead content. I'd recommend including said disclaimer/variant, if only so that your entry attracts more votes in the general categories like Best Overall or Gorby's Choice (by applying for use to a wider audience, in settings where cannibalism isn't tolerated as such) - I'd say to improve "Wish I was There", but that's not very likely for this particular tavern, is it? ;D :D

Comrade Gorby: This entry was pushing it by concept to begin with; the portions I removed put it way out of bounds. DQ'd for violation of forum rules.
